The StackMaster™TR Managed Hub:

Complies with current IEEE 802.5 token ring standards to ensure interoperability

Supports external SNMP network management

Provides sixteen RJ-45 lobe ports support both STP and UTP

Provides active signal retiming and regeneration on a per port basis maximizes lobe and RI/RO cable runs

Supports Category 3, 4 or 5 UTP/STP and IBM Type 1 Cable

Allows 4 or 16 Mbps operation

Allows RI/RO connection to both “active hubs” and “passive hubs”

Delivers fault-tolerant, automatic ring wrap capability at RI/RO

Provides Zero Delay Lockout, automatic lockout of station configured at wrong speed

Installed as standalone or rackmount in a standard 19” rackmount frame.

Provides serial port connection for Out of Band management.

NOTE: The StackMaster™TR 16-Port Hub is designed to support an Active Retime environment with HOT SWAP capability. An active hub can be added or removed without bringing the network down.

Insert/Normal LEDs

The Insert LED (above the Ring In port) is illuminated if the

StackMaster™TR 16-Port RI port is connected to the RO port of a hub.

NOTE: When the RI switch is in the passive position, the LED always is

ON, indicating that the RI port is configured in the passive mode.

The Normal LED (above the Ring Out port) is illuminated if the StackMaster™TR 16-Port RO port is connected to the RI port of a hub which is powered.

NOTE: When the RO switch is in the passive position, the LED always is

ON, indicating that the RO port is configured in the passive mode.

Reset

A reset switch is located on the front of the StackMaster™TR 16-Port Hub. The reset switch reinitializes the StackMaster™TR 16-Port Unit. If the SNMP Management Board is installed in the StackMaster™TR 16-Port Unit and the StackMaster™TR 16-Port Unit is installed at the top of a Stack, the reset switch reinitializes the entire Stack.

2. Site Planning

Site planning for the StackMasterTR Stack requires consideration both of site conditions and of token ring standards.

2.1 Site Considerations

The site for the StackMasterTR Token Ring Stack must provide the following:

AC power outlet for each StackMasterTR Unit

Adequate ventilation

Standard environmental conditions

Isolation from electrical noise, including radio transmitters and broadbank amplifiers, motors, high power electrical lines, or fluorescent light fixtures

Additionally:

The token ring cables should not run in the same conduit with power line cables.

Phone lines should be separated from data cables.

Flat or “silver satin” wires should not be used.

NOTE: SNMP network management is optional.

The network parameter data sheets are intended to be a permanent record of site-specific network parameter values that will be required for configuring SNMP network management.
